Updated PoD Category Chart (6/6)
Not a whole lot of changes this time around. Ubaldo Jimenez was well on his way to joining Club DTM until he redeemed himself last night. Francisco Liriano also escaped our doghouse by notching back to back stellar performances while Clay Buchholz decided that the music at Club DTM just wasn’t that good.
And here are the few changes we’ve made since our last update:
Cahill PoD to grad
Hughes PoD to grad
Parker PoD to grad
Liriano DTM to PoD
Buchholz DTM to PoD
Alvarez grad to PoD
Guthrie PoD to indifferent
Once again, a reminder as to how the chart works:
We’ve divided all of the current starting rotation pitchers in the Majors into five groups: Aces, Grads (pitchers who you should be starting regardless of the matchup), Pitch or Ditch (guys who you should be picking up to start in favorable matchups but do not deserve a regular roster spot), DTMs (guys who we are fed up with and would not start under any circumstances for the time being) and Indifferents (guys who we don’t feel any ill-will towards but who just aren’t that good). Keep in mind that these classifications are very much subject to change throughout the season based on performance. We’ll be updating the chart every other week.
All feedback is welcome!
